It Takes a Village to Feed Those in Need

Hillary Clinton popularized the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child."  The same can be said for feeding those less privileged.  The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities sponsors a community meal program where hot meals are provided for those in need, five days a week.

With the help of many loyal volunteers, once a month I am the lucky one who gets to coordinate and cook the community meal.

This time we prepared and served roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, carrots, apple sauce, corn muffins and pumpkin pie.

Via Facebook, I asked for donations of corn muffins and pumpkin pies.  Krista and her sons baked and delivered 100 corn muffins.  Thank you!

Fourteen pies were donated by caring friends.  Pottsgrove Middle School's Life Skills class baked two pumpkin pies.  How awesome is that?

Pies and muffins!

Our village preparing mashed potatoes, with Chris serving as the muscle (thank goodness!).

 A time of celebration!

Hunger knows no age limits.

There is no THANKS without GIVING.  Would you please consider helping those in need in our community?  It is easy to make a donation to the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities by clicking HERE.  Thank you!
